GDN Global Research Competition 2016

By 25 August 2016

The Global Development Network (GDN) has launched a Global Research Competition (GRC) on aid effectiveness in sub-Saharan Africa, with a focus on health and agriculture.

Early career researchers from developing countries (who have completed their doctoral studies in or after 2011) are invited to apply to win four grants of $24,000, to fund institutional, comparative, cross-country research efforts looking at why, and how, aid works in sub-Saharan Africa.

Teams should be affiliated with universities, independent research institutions, think tanks, networks and consortia based in Africa. Expressions of Interest (EOI) should focus on either one of the two sectors and two or more countries. The research project will be conducted over a 12 month period, from December 2016 to December 2017.

EOIs should be submitted by September 11, 2016 midnight, Nairobi Time (GMT +3). Shortlisted teams will need to submit a full proposal by the end of October 2016.
